OCC Customs Choppers Indian
In the early days of motorized bicycles, there were a lot of brands. We know how one emerged as the American market leader until the metrics came and changed the game. Quiet was the Indian Motorcycle company when it folded until it reopened decades later. They have been back in operations for a number of years and I'm seeing more of the advertisements.
I don't know what I think of the Indian, how it sets itself apart from other marks such as HD or Victory. By the brand, there is a degree of nostalgia incorporated into what is a more modern bike. When you look around SL, you don't see many of them until OCC Customs Choppers gave us a matte black bobber under the Indian tradition.
Each time we get a bike to test, we'll get very close to it let it speak to us. I've said this before, bikes will speak to their riders. They have a story to tell. They listen to our stories and our troubles. Often they take us to the brink of hell. The stories this bike would tell might put a cloud on your heart. Is it evil? No. It is Evil's angry cousin.
The OCC Indian has a dark style. When you see it, you'll notice an aggressive stance and readiness. It is when you sit in the saddle and light the fires how aggressive and able the bike is. Indian Stargazer does an incredible job putting bikes on the road which can be ridden and using the KCP/ACS script. Plain in simple, this dark hearted bike is one of the easiest to ride. You can compliantly ride it in the appropriate lane of travel for your country because you like to follow the law.....yeah right!
It is when we take a step back in time that we learn about ourselves and our culture. Indian motorcycles are part of our collective history and our culture. When bikes were really transportation, there was something cool about them. Indians....well, there is something more than cool about this brand. You ride and Indian when you don't want to conform to the insurance agents and lawyers, you ride one because you've earned the right.
Now you can ride one here!
